10+ Years 5 days a week of classroom teaching as a Early Learner Music Specialist.
My graphics, lessons, activities, books and curriculum are developed from the color-coding system used with Boomwhackers. In my classroom experience, I discovered that teaching early learners (age 3up) with colors helps them to visualize the notes, lines and spaces on my Treble Clef mats. They quickly learn written notes when you start teaching them about lines and spaces with a visible color. They will transition into black and white later. It’s like training wheels on a bicycle. For early learners (age 3 up) I’m amazed how fast they will learn to sight-read notes on a staff with this method. The Boom Whackers can also be a very useful performance instrument and teaching tool to help reinforce my teaching concept. I use Boomwhacker Colors C=Red D=Orange E=Yellow F=Lime Green G=Green A=Purple B=Magenta “Helping Others Teach The Gift Of Music”
